Tapers: Jason Reiser and Ed Paff
Conversion (mixdown): Jason Reiser
Source: Mix in Post Environment of Jason's Audience source and Ed's Soundboard source
AUD: Schoeps MK4 > Sonosax SX-M2/LS > Sound Devices 722 @ 24bit/96kHz
(mics in DINa, 13' high, at soundboard mixing location - section 6, ~ row M, center)
SBD: SBD > Henry Engineering Patchbox > Creative Nomad Jukebox 3
Lineage (mixdown): Adobe Audition > iZotope Ozone 3 > CD Wave 1.94.5 beta > FLAC 1.1.2
Notes: The two sources were time synced as best as possible in Audition, and fades were
applied. This mix was subjected to VERY mild mastering effects in iZotope Ozone 3,
namely a slight paragraphic EQ to restore a few dB of high frequency dropoff, and
a slight midrange dip, and very slight multiband stereo imaging to widen the overall
soundstage and introduce some presence. This as well as the overall mix was done
pretty much by ear (and per-sample calculations for shrinking the AUD source to
overcome the clock shift). It sounds great on my Genelec 1031APMs and Sennheiser
600s, but you're always welcome to do your own personal mix if this one doesn't
suit your taste.
I swapped the L/R channels on the SBD source as I believe they are recorded backwards
(based on the incorrect channel assignment during The Beatles' "Revolution" during
the Intro, and the less obvious channel balance on my audience recording.) Maybe the
Patchbox was plugged in backwards or some other weirdness, but this certainly yeilded
the best results.
Thanks to Ed for giving permission to use his source and distribute it via the LMA.
Thanks again to Mike Smith for my tickets, and to both he and OAR for the batteries.
And finally thanks again to J.P. for letting me run my rig inside the soundboard cage,
and for making and offering patches of such a kick-ass mix. Nice work!

Subject: The Early Reviewers Know What They're Talking About
When you've done some comparisons using a good computer sound system and a good pair of headphones, then you'll know what you're talking about.
Subject: A List for OAR Newbies - Trust Me - MSG is Not The One You Want
Most are better than this show, but here are some that I would share with my OAR newbie friends:
Pretty much all the shows right after 9/11 2001 were excellent, with a whole bunch of feeling and passion -
11-04 2001 Wilson Hall
10-25 2001 Bluebird
11-26 2005 Tweeter Center
10-30 2004 Taft Theatre
Don't waste your time with generic MSG show because all this hype is some kind of error...
The only thing I like very much is sax !! It definitely increases my rate from 2 to 3. lol
Subject: Frustrated with the DL count.
Subject: good show
Subject: great shirts
Subject: Not digging this
Subject: Wow Sound & what a music!!
Happy to go music while on work!
Subject: I was curious
Well - the music truly does suck. It tends to be flaccid and uninspiring. Nothing grabs my ear at all. We know now that the download total is a fluke of some media player DL'ing it as the default setting or whatever, so this band got incredibly lucky and now millions of people have heard of 'em that would have otherwise not.
The recording is very well done, and I wish I could think of something colorful to say, like, "I'd rather listen to a good recording of bovine flatulence", or, I'd rather listen to a good recording of Yoko Ono singing John Lennon a lullaby", or something like that but I just can't think of anything clever. Besides, it would not be true.
I suppose given a choice between this band and deafening silence for the rest of my life, I might take the OAR because the recording is good and the crowd noise in between sounds like they are really digging it.
What more needs to be said?
I can't give one star just because it's not a band that I dig, that defeats the purpose of reviews, people!
Solid job on the recording, I'd say four-star.
Band is weak, but if you like 'em, it sounds like they had a good noght, so I'll go with four stars there.
Live and let live. :)
Subject: Most overated band and show!!
Subject: Try a different one
Subject: Worst ever
Subject: I'm getting sleepy...
Subject: they aren't that good.
a shame because i thought they had potential when i saw them play in new york when they weren't popular at all.
Subject: bad show bad band
Subject: 2,500,000 downloads ya right, thats like saying it never snows in buffalo
Subject: Utterly terrible.
What came out of my headphones was a terrible stew of awful, boring, uninteresting, lazy, dull, plain jam band shite. Don't be fooled -- There are thousands of bands that fill honkey tonks and beer bars across this country that sound just as snoozefest as this monster.
It's like Paul Schaffer doing Dave Matthew's whole band in the back end while your precious Garcia stirs the gravy. Blammo bore nod off musico dork bore fest extravaganza. Nothing unique, nothing creative.
Do not even waste your time finding out what these idiots are spewing.
Subject: So Sick!!
Thanks to the recorders and mixers!! I know ya'll do this stuff a lot and it is so so appreciated!!!! THANKS!!!

Subject: O.A.R. at their best
That being said, the recording itself is nice and you can tell there was a good atmosphere that night.
Subject: get over yourself
Subject: Good Show.
Subject: Let's remember what the reviews are meant to do.
Subject: this band sucks!!!!!
has to be one of the worst acts on this site!!!!!!! I would never
download this show or anything from OAR.......... why has
over 2 million people downloaded this ????????????????
Subject: Negative Reviewers
Of course not. If it's popular, it's probably because people...that does NOT mean you...may actually LIKE McDonalds and mainstream rap. I'm pretty safe in saying that those people probably disagree with your characterization that both of these things suck. Also I'm sure there are many people that like OAR, in spite of your proclamation that they suck.
Subject: Frat Boys and beer
To the reviewer who said that they must be good because so many people like them and because they are soooo popular... Lots of popular things suck, like MCdonalds and mainstream rap. OAR is popular and has so many DLs because people have heard of them and because they are catchy. However, i think that there's little substance in them for anyone who is really interested in live music.
If you want to hear a good jam, go check out the "little Hands" that the String Cheese Incident played at Mt Shasta Ski Resort on 2001-08-06 or the Grateful Dead's "eyes of the World > Dancin in the Streets" from 1977-02-26 or the "san Jose" by SCI from Noblesville Indiana From 2004-07-13 or any Bela Fleck and the Flecktones to name a few.
Subject: false download count
"The deal with that OAR show is that that particular show has become the default show stream for a new music player, causing the counts to be gargantuan. Out of the ordinary, yes I know, but it is valid because of the music player's choosing it for a default."
Subject: 2 million for a reason
To add to that, you should hate and band and the fact that they are popular simply because you don't like them. As far as I'm concerned if you can play music and you have people who like your music then more power to you. Keep playing, even if I hate the music. The important thing is that somebody loves that music enough to want to hear it. After all, thats all music is supposed to be, it's supposed to bring out emotions in you whether it be joy or sadness or whatever else. Even if I don't like the music, I don't hate somebody else and the band itself because there must be at least one person who does enjoy listening to it.
As far as this show is concerned, this recording is amazing because not only is the music recorded well but the crowd is too, so the atmosphere is captured to a certain extent. You can feel the crowd getting pumped for delicate few, and nothing beats hearing a sold out Madison Square Garden belting out every note of that song. Amazing job on the recording!!!
Subject: Almost two million!!!
